Stella Blue

I can't think of another song where an Emaj7 in the opening verse feels and sounds as right as it does in SB.

Yeah, yeah, I know it's repeated, but to me it seems like there's a ritardando on the opening verse that just doesn't show up in subsequent verses.

Eyes of the World...But as far as setting up tension/resolution, which I think is what you're getting at, SB nails it.
